Peru 

Bordering the Pacific Ocean, Peru is one of the most remarkably picturesque and breath-taking places on the planet. You'll be located in an authentic Peruvian town, Cusco, nestled at the foot of the Andes just a short distance from the Lost Kingdom: Macchu Picchu. Home to a 15th century inca citadel and named one of the "New Seven Wonders of the World" it's a must see in South America.

The Experience

Teach english at "Aldea Yanapay" to the children of Cusco and immerse them within various educational activities, such as painting, music or even culture workshops.  The goal of the projects is to build a sustainable eco-village for the children, something that really impacts the lives of these children forever. Go home knowing you've positively made a difference to the lives of many, something that you truly cannot put a price on.

We can offer you a variety of opportunities to see a little more of this incredibly breathtaking country, which we truly would recommend in your spare time. First, the one you're all thinking about, Macchu Picchu. Named one of the new seven wonders of the world, it's the perfect chance to learn a little more about Peru's fascinating Inca traditions and history whilst capturing your perfect new profile picture. On top of this, explore the andes on bike tours, learn language at the home of the Inca's and make some new best friends for life. What more could you want?
